At this point in the 25-year-old’s career, a clear pattern has emerged: Every few months or so, Bieber can’t seem to help himself from reverting to a dirty blond mane so scruffy that his doting wife, Hailey, has started staging haircut interventions.
Fully embracing his roast on Comedy Central, Bieber matched his hair to his monkey’s. (To be clear, this is not OG Mally, Bieber’s pet monkey, who was infamously confiscated by the German authorities, and who is still a resident of a German zoo—and still having trouble communicating with other monkeys.
And as Bieber releases Changes, his first new album in five years, this week, it’s more than clear that another one is needed; his newly revived mustache is so universally despised that it’s generating just as much press as Changes.
Even she (reportedly) “can’t stand” Bieber’s mustache, which unfortunately made a comeback. (Bieber even put it at the center of his “Intentions” art. ) Hailey has yet to publicly condemn it, but according to People‘s mysterious source, that might be for the best: “The more people want him to shave it off, the more he wants to keep it. It’s staying for now.
Periods of scruff soon followed, but Bieber once again managed to clean things up for his (second) wedding to Hailey in the following months.
By the next month, the dreads were fully gone, though that didn’t stop Bieber from making a statement while on his trip to Monaco.
Alas, they weren’t that luscious for that long: Just two days later, reportedly at the behest of Hailey Baldwin, Bieber got a haircut—and a very on-trend one at that.
It’s no surprise that Bieber kicked off the new year in a pair of Drew House pajamas, but his peroxide pixie was definitely an unexpected touch.
